Iron Mask Names New Singer - Kelly Sundown Carpenter

Iron Mask named its new vocalist in Kelly Sundown Carpenter, who recently filled in for the vacant Firewind vocal position after the departure of Apollo Papathanasio in 2013. Carpenter is also the vocalist for Darkology and Adagio. Carpenter replaces long time vocalist Mark Boals (Ring of Fire/ex-Yngwie Malmsteen) and will begin work on the band's follow up to the 2013 release "Fifth Son of Winterdoom," which is available now through AFM Records.

The announcement came via band leader Dushan Petrossi, who stated: "We are happy to announce our new band-brother, Kelly Sundown (ex-Firewind & Darkology), as permanent vocalist of Iron Mask. You will find him from now on on every gig with us and on the following CD's. After a long search for the perfect person, we finally have the amazing vocalist with matching personality closeby in Belgium.
We are all ready and looking forward to tour the world and rock the night away. Thanks again to all the singers for the many auditions that I've received and I wish you all the very best in your further career."

Carpenter also made a statement: "I've decided to join forces with Iron Mask. I grew up listening to Neo-Classical metal so this should be great fun! Mark Boals -who sang on my favorite Yngwie Malmsteen album "Trilogy" was the vocalist on Iron Mask's last album...so it all makes very good sense
Here's a pic of Vassili, myself and Dushan Petrossi at the Citadelle in Namur last night. It doesn't get more metal then that... We lifted a pint or two in the promise of bringing you something special!"
